Bolts to new ring anchors to the right of those for Shrimp. Top-rope may swing into a tall tree, but far safer than the killer swing for 'Shrimp'.

Description:

Start in the big dihedral at the right end of the Amphitheater to cross left wall past bolt to roof, exit left and straight up many small overhangs, head around to the right, and finish between upper roofs. Favorite link-up from mid-route shuts for 'Shrimp' as much better finish.

3 out of 5 stars odd

Very easy bits mixed with some harder sections. Wouldn't want to lead it on the nasty tiny bolts near the bottom. Not sure when to start the traverse left toward the anchors for Shrimp... seemed like there weren't any feet in that section. After the traverse, it was pretty easy again up till the top roof where the 11 kicked back in. I was tired so I opted to go right (not a cakewalk, but easier).

4 out of 5 stars Freakin roof!

Dihedral was fun, climbing left out roof is pretty tough--no feet!

4 out of 5 stars Simple climb

Only two really tricky spots, the first roof and the top section to the bolts. Dialed them in on TR, then sent it easy. Wish I had just up and led it, but the first bolt freaked me out a bit with the fall potential.
